DRESS & SHOES C/O DESIRE CLOTHING

How awesome is this dress? The colour,the cut outs,the missing back (which I forgot to take a photo of duhhh) it fits like an absolute dream and I can't wait to get some wear out of it this summer.

As for the Heels,they are a pleasure to walk in,I'm hoping comfy enough for a night out on the town without my constant complaining of how sore my feet are....watch this space.

Massive thumbs up to Desire Clothing

2. Poke in a slice of cucumber and a basil leaf and put in freezer for 20mins until icy cold but not fully frozen (this will hold the cucumber in place).
P1080045
3. Fill up the rest of the mould with cold water and add another slice of cucumber and a basil leaf. Put back in freezer for around an hour until they are just starting to set and then poke in your lollipop stick (This stops the stick from falling to one side).Then put back in freezer and leave overnight to set solid.

4.Finally remove from freezer,run the mould under the hot tap for a few seconds and pop out your awesome lollies.

These are perfect on a hot day and are super tasty,I will be trying loads of flavours over the summer and also adding alcohol for an even yummier version.

Let me know if you try these

Hope you are all having a great week and enjoying the sunshine

P1070663P1070743P1070741P1070757P1070861IMG_4083IMG_4082IMG_4087IMG_4086IMG_4085IMG_4091

I'd like to introduce a new feature on my blog...'Week In Photos'

I've gotten in to using my camera more this month and i'm really enjoying taking photos of daily happenings.
If you follow me on Instagram you will know i'm a HUGE foodie,all I tend to do these days is cook,eat 
and attend food shows.
This weeks makes include: Salmon and Samphire,Fried Egg And Tomatoes on Garlic Toast and Sticky Thai Chicken.

I've had a lot of requests to start putting my recipes on my blog so if you are keen for this to become a regular feature then please let me know.

I also attended the BBC Good Food Show in Birmingham which was brilliant,we saw a live demonstration from the Greedy Italians (Antonio Carluccio and Gennaro Contaldo)they cooked up a storm and the theatre smelt insane.

As you can see I left with more Alcohol than food but a cheeky tipple never hurt anyone.

I hope you have all had a great week,what have you been up to?

Much Love

SOUL SISTA

Hey Sista,Go Sista,Soul Sista,Flow Sista...

This was the first thing that came into my head when Missguided asked me to collaborate on the 'Soul Sisters' Campaign.
Who better to ask to join me in doing so, than my good friend & Cousin Harriet.

P1070871P1070879
Years after making up dance routines,putting on performances for our parents,countless sleepovers,days out,shopping sprees after shopping sprees and many a meal (it used to be twice a week) at our local Indian restaurant we are still the closet of friends and I couldn't ask for a better Cousin,she most definitely is my soul sister!!

Who is your Soul Sister?

Can we all just take a second to appreciate this dress......and breathe,I'm so in love with it,I haven't been this drawn to a print in a very long time and think its very unique. I can see myself getting an insane amount of wear out of it this summer.

I whacked on my Dr. Marten Liza's to add some toughness along with a choker chain and an assortment of rings.I'm loving silver at the moment,it's less in your face than gold and looks awesome with a tan.

How would you style this dress?

Much Love
